Scientific career

Albert Thellung (12 May 1881 – 26 June 1928) was a Swiss botanist.

He was a professor at the University of Zürich. The Austrian botanist Otto Stapf named the plant genus Thellungia of the grass family, Poaceae, after him, and Otto Eugen Schulz named the genus Thellungiella (family Brassicaceae) in his honor.[1]

Thellung made contributions to the third (1909–14) and fourth (1923) editions of Schinz and Keller's Flora der Schweiz.[2]
